Surprised there are only 6 reviews in this forum so far?? Got this last week in a sale from MF I'll add the link but copy the specs. http://www.guitarcenter.com/Gibson/...ff0ef6e11e5996be2322f8ed2120INT#productDetail Body: Mahogany Top: Carved maple Back: Mahogany Neck: Set mahogany Neck Profile: '60s Headstock: Angled Scale length: 24-3/4" Fingerboard: Bound Rosewood No. of frets: 22 Nut width: 1.69" Inlays: Trapezoid Binding: Antique Bridge: Tune-O-Matic with stopbar tailpiece Tuners: Locking Grover Hardware: Chrome Bridge pickup: Super 57 humbucker with push/push coil-splitting Neck Pickup: '57 Classic with push/push coil-splitting Electronics: 2 volume with push/push coil-splitting, 2 tone (1 with push/push to activate boost), 3-way toggle pickup selector Knobs: Vintage Gibson top hats Pickguard: Period-correct Case: Hardshell Other: Plek setup Ok notable things: PLEK Setup! This guitar although slightly off from perfect intonation, plays perfect, fit and finish perfect, nothing sticking out or anything. Nothing is book matched, basically two halves made a whole for the body, and two other halves made a whole for the top. Of course it is solid woods! Satin finish, personally I find nothing wrong with that. It's BOAT ANCHOR weight, those that love those 70's LPs will feel right at home, probably 10.5-11 lbs I've mostly been playing chambered guitars so this is a real wake up call to pick this up. But wow Resonant! As I was tuning this guitar up, felt more vibration through the tuners than any other guitar I've played so far. Although it doesn't sound 'loud' when played unplugged. Coil split and Active boost I've played plenty of LP style guitars and actual Gibsons of various types, these pickups are nice! They aren't as 'sharp' sounding as the older 57's or Burstbuckers. A bit 'wider' spectrum and the Neck doesn't get too muddy, but for those that expect that huge sharp jump in the bridge, that isn't quite there either. But it features a much more wider usable range on the Tone and Volume pots, especially a nice surprise that the tone pots have become useful! Usually those are maxed out for me. now I can work 3-8. Volume does it usual Nice to Grind and Crunch, no 'howl' BUT It comes with an Active boost. This boost actually sounds nice! As far as I can tell, tone stack bypass and a dB boost that is controllable, and can be incredibly handy if you just need to put that amp one more notch over the top. The coil split on the other hand meh, terrible Do not expect this guitar to sound like a single coil or anything strat like, the sound doesn't just go softer, it goes muddy. I have and have had other SC type guitars that are lighter body, thinner body that do a much better job in that do a much better job. I wonder if they perhaps split the PU different that it might do better. Maybe with the split on and the boost on and some EQ'ing you might get something decent sounding out of that position. Dislike, but didn't get it for the split coil feature. 60's neck, I'm very used to this profile, I can play wider, but started with this profile and I find it very comfortable, with the PLEK on top of that, I find it a breeze to play. It actually has been quite a while since I've played an actual Gibson LP and I must say, this is a NICE guitar, easy to play, great sounding SC. In the end the weight might do me in but I feel it does give me this better resonance and nice sound. Although I didn't get to compare to similar ones of a lighter weight. Beyond that, the price was really good on it. Hopefully the next generation of 57's comes with a more usable split coil ratio.
